Author’s insights help photographers find unique perspectives. Perfect companion for a beginner photographer all the way to more experienced ones. The author’s insights were most helpful in guiding a photographer in how to set up the shot and how to look for unique perspectives to make your photographs even better. Written in an easy to read, conversational style. Hopefully more Jordana Wright books will be published soon.
